Quality and lean manufacturing

Quality Management System

A well-established Quality Management System and the implemented lean manufacturing concept are integral elements of a successful company.

The Quality Management System ensures the stability of products or services, increases the satisfaction of customers and employees.

Lean manufacturing improves efficiency through a continuous loss elimination process.

Development of lean manufacturing concept

TRIANGLUM has extensive practical experience in implementing lean manufacturing tools and developing a quality management system at hundreds of production sites both in Russia and abroad.

Quality management system development
  • Provide assessment of Quality Management System (QMS);
  • Develop QMS up to the worldwide level;
  • Prepare QMS according to the Customers’ requirements (SES* etc.);
  • Assist on quality standards certification ISO 9001, ISO14000, IATF 16949:2016 and others.
Lean manufacturing implementation

Evaluate current Production System:

  • identify losses points;
  • prepare plan for production process optimization;

Support:

  • Production transformation by implementing Lean tools;
  • Stabilization of Production System at the improved level;

Restore operating ability of Lean approach, where system stagnated after initial Lean implementation.

Assistance

Support launch of new production sites (Greenfield):

  • Development of Quality Management System
  • to meet required level;
  • to support efficient production based on Lean Manufacturing;

Assist on preparation of new processes for serial production according to OEMs standards: APQP*, APQP, NPI, etc.
